there are no option named '-config' - try removing it and uninstall/install again..
-config "%CATALINA_HOME%\conf\server.xml"
You can see the valid options by typing 'tomcat /?' in a DOS box.
you could also look at this post: https://coderanch.com/t/81928/Tomcat/Tomcat-as-service
or do a search in the this forum - there has been a lot of post about this topic.

Here's the command I have used....
set SERVICENAME=Apache
set JAVACLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%
set JAVACLASSPATH=%JAVACLASSPATH%;"%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\bootstrap.jar"
set JAVACLASSPATH=%JAVACLASSPATH%;"%CATALINA_HOME%\common\lib\servlet.jar"
set JAVACLASSPATH=%JAVACLASSPATH%;"%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar"
tomcat.exe -install "%SERVICENAME%" "%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll" -Djava.class.path="%JAVACLASSPATH%" -Dcatalina.home="%CATALINA_HOME%" -Xrs -start org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap -params start -stop org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap -params stop -out "%CATALINA_HOME%\logs\catalina.out" -err "%CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stderr.log" -current "%CATALINA_HOME%\bin"...
Any idea as to how I can have the service started after installing the service...
Thanks in Advance!
